Turning A Game Boy Into An Analog Synthesizer
In this video, we watch a demonstration of Nanoloop, a flash chip that turns a Nintendo Gameboy into an analog synthesizer.
“On the original Game Boy models, one pin of the cartridge connector functions as audio input, connected to the built-in amplifier. This feature makes it possible to generate sound on the cart and play it through the headphone output, with a completely analog signal path.”
Given that the technological sophistication of the Gameboy is relatively minimal, it’s quite fascinating to see a project like this being implemented. Sometimes, less is more.
